The P.E.A.R.L. Institute of NY is committed to creating a mutual aid community for Chinese students in North America (also known as a "Service Center"). The community is headquartered in New York City and will combine the Internet to build a "physical + cloud" multi-dimensional community. We hope that through the community, we will promote the healthy development of international students' academic, physical, mental and social spirit, and better adaptation to the problems caused by social and cultural differences. We also hope to promote the development of their study, livelihood, work safety and health.
